Distilled by Edradour and bottled by The Ultimate Whiskey Company, this 9yr 2009 vintage scotch whiskey was dumped from sherry cask #391 and bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering. A particular popular cask in some circles, it's known for its bonkers sherry influence. Let's dig in.
Sweet and bright. More fruit than dessert forward - it’s like the punch bowl. Strawberry, kiwi, cherry, blueberry. Light oak, faint honey. Stewed fruits all day.
Medium mouth feel. Some heat, but not much. Toffee, brown butter, cherry and blackberry, some currant and fig. Faint pepper balances nicely.
Long finish. Light sulfur, toffee, syrupy and rich. Raisin bread, cherry and raspberry.
Nice progression from tangy fruits to a darker profile with more oak, syrup, spice. Lovely.
